Betty Jean (Taylor) Bowen my wife of 59+ years passed away June 6.She was a longtime member of the Irving Bass Club and helped with the registration at our Open Tournaments.
Betty loved fishing and back in the day,would sit for hours on the banks of Clear Creek a tributary of the Little Miami River.We lived in Newtown Ohio where we both grew up.We moved to Texas in 1977 following a job transfer by my employer.
After joining the Irving Bass Club, she wanted a bass boat and truck to pull it.As a result, owned 5 bass boats but I got only one truck.
She suffered from chronic back problems and had several surgeries in an attempt to live pain free.
A 2005 chest X-ray revealed a cancerous tumor which was removed by a lobectomy.
She decided to have a risky spinal fusion operation in 2017 followed by lengthy rehabilitation.
In 2018 we got the news that the cancer had returned but was inoperable due to her weakened condition.

I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I get an allowance every month. I have PU truck and a bass boat, I am blessed.
